Commencement Picnic, Friday May 9

President and Mrs. Reveley invite all graduates and their families to a picnic at Longwood House, home of the President, on Friday, May 9 from 4:30-6:30 pm.  This will be a casual event with games on the lawn, a BBQ, and tours of Longwood House.

Register for the commencement picnic here!

The graduate will need to register for the picnic by Thursday, April 24.

  • Since parking is limited, guests are encouraged to park at the Wynne Drive parking lot and take a provided shuttle to Longwood House.  Wynne Drive is located off of South Main Street near the Longwood University baseball/softball fields at the South end of campus.
  • Continuous shuttle service will begin at 4 pm from Wynne Drive to Longwood House, located at 1403 Johnston Drive, Farmville VA.
  • Graduate candidates will need to be at Lancaster ground floor by 6:30 pm for line-up, however, we hope you will have the opportunity to visit earlier at Longwood House with your guests.
  • If inclement weather, the picnic will be cancelled.  The cancellation will be posted on the Commencement website.
